« Il Tedesco »
Madrigals, villanelles and tunes by Kapsberger
L’Escadron volant de la Reine
L’Escadron Volant de la Reine sets its sights on Rome to bring you music by Kapsberger. This programme, entirely dedicated to the extremely varied work of the extravagant musician and theorbo virtuoso, highlights his one book of madrigals published in 1608, alongside soloist vocal pieces, popular songs and instrumental pieces.
A marvel of counterpoint, harmony and expressiveness fuelled by the alternately sensual, pastoral and amorous poems written by Guarini, Le Tasse and Giovanni Battista Marino, Kapsberger’s work is certainly worth a detour!
